, military installation for the united states army. the biggest army installation in the world. every state, every territory from all over come and serve at fort hood, texas. and has been that way for a great number of years. my father, who served in the great world war ii, when he was an 18-year-old and did basic training in texas and came back home in 1945, was sent to fort hood, texas, to be reequipped for the invasion of japan -- re-equipped for the invasion of japan that never took place. but he met my mom there in temple, texas. he got married and that's why i was born in temple, texas, and have a great affection for that institution and all those that have served with the united states army at that location. it is now the deployment post for individuals who go overseas to represent the rest of us. they go to iraq. they go to afghanistan. they go to kosovo. they go all over the world. they are being deployed at this time to represent our country and the values that we have. and many of them have served multiple tours of duty. some of them up to four tours of duty in iraq. but yet they
how the united states may change this influence, address this national security deficiencies him and provide global leadership in an era when the american economy may not be the overwhelming source of power it once was. increasingly, national influence will be determined by whether the countries can contribute to solving global problems or at lease whether they are making themselves indispensable to other nations. china and other developing economies are demanding a greater say in the management of the world economy through the g20 and other mechanisms. china's global leverage has increased as it liberally positioned itself as a creditor nation with more than 20% of the world current account balance surplus. we cannot depend invasively on china investing heavily in the united states government that. some thought must be given to how we work with china and other nations to establish a more sensible global balance that depends less on demand by american consumers. the united states in the g20 also must rethink the role of the international financial institutions that provide crisis
newman is back with us as we wait for the president of the united states. the f.b.i. quickly tried to say no terrorism connection here. at the same time, they're looking at all ends, but not entirely ruling it out. what do you make of that? >> that is standard f.b.i. procedure. i learned that from my mother, who god rest her soul, worked directly for j. edgar hoover and she would bring the files home when we were kids and we learned it back then. this is a professional organization, the f.b.i., and you don't want to rule everything out and don't want to rule everything in. remain calm. assume absolutely nothing and get to the bottom of it while maintaining your -- if you want to go to somewhere else, go ahead. neil: that's fine. i'm not even aware of the time. i'm going to shepard smith as we wait for the president of the united states. >> glenn beck is off today. this is fox news continuing coverage of the tragedy at fort hood. fox news confirms through the military as you just heard 12 people murdered and 31 injured in that shooting rampage at fort hood next to killeen, texas. we can te
to terrorist organizations, that directly threaten the security of the united states, it is essential that our government agencies are sharing information about such individuals. what happens been in the media these last days about major hasan and his behavior, if determined to be true, is very disturbing. such allegations as justifying suicide bombing on the internet, lecturing fellow soldiers using jihadist rhetoric, warning about adverse events if muslims were not allowed to leave military service, repeatedly seeking counsel from a radical islamic imam with well-known ties to al-qaeda. attempting to convert some of his patients who were suffering from stress disorders to his distorted view of islam and finally, was the fbi sharing with the army what it knew about hasan and aulaqi and was the army sharing what it knew about hasan with the fbi? while these patterns are preliminary and will be confirmed by the the investigations that are being conducted, it is very similar to what we experienced at fort bragg in the late '90s where we were wrongfully tolerating extremists in our organization w

military installation was devastated when the soldiers and civilians of the united states army in heinously attacked by the least likely of assailents. a murderer who benefited from the american dream of unlimited opportunity, attending medical school at military expense, and a person given trust as a high rank in our military. he cowardly then committed treason. in the aftermath we have learned that 13 of our bravest and finest americans were killed and several dozen more were wounded. this senseless act of horror betrays our respect and dignity to human life. our deepest thoughts and prayers are with each of the families affected by this great tragedy. my constituents are shocked and saddened in discussing today this tragedy with carl gooding of wdog radio of allendale, south carolina, i know first hand the low country of south carolina is praying for the fort hood families. amidst this tragedy there are reports that many soldiers in the immediate vicinity of the attack provided heroic aid to their fellow soldiers who had been wounded. several of them already wounded themselves. these sel

trafficking is actually done out of the prison system in the united states. particularly the california prison system. and he mentioned one prison, pelican bay, in specific. and then i came back, and i found that there are all these cell phones in prisons which enables a group, name live the mexican mafia, to essentially use cell phones to give directives right out of prisons on hits, on territories, on dealers, and i think this is a very serious thing. i've introduced legislation that would make cell phones contraband in federal prisons with possession punishable by up to an additional year in prison. what do you think of this? what are you doing? it is a real problem, mr. attorney general. >> it is a real problem, senator. i had experience with that when i was the united states attorney here in washington, d.c. rapel edmonds was convicted, sent to jail and continued to run his drug enterprise from prison, was convicted again for that. the maintenance of cell phones in prison, i think, is unacceptable and i think we have to find ways in which we conif i skate them. you're right, they ought to

. it will be necessary to have such a fund. and that fund should not be the united states treasury. we're going to be risking more debt to enact this -- to enact this proposal. so the amendment would prohibit the united states treasury from being used as a means for capital reserve funds. the amendment also clarifies that the public plan would need to seek investments or use premiums to create a capital reserve fund similar to that which is required of other health plans. allowing the united states treasury to be the ultimate backstop will encourage -- would encourage the plan to act recklessly. we've already seen what happens when this is applied. while this bill prohibits bailouts of the public plan using the treasury has a promise of government backing is indirectly, we're allowing such. the public plan can still use the faith and credit of the united states to stabilize their risk. if it's good enough for business, it's good enough for insurers. even casinos, it should be good enough for the public plan. shouldn't they play by the same rules as everyone else. it is committed to a public pla

challenges with these prisoners. why move them into the united states while we are still under the threat from radical jihadists? >> schieffer: i want to turn to the massacre at fort hood because you were one of those in congress who immediately began pressing the government for answers when they were giving out very little information. where do you think this thing stands now, congressman? are you satisfied with where it's going so far? >> no, i ti that the government has been too slow in giving us information. there hasn't been enough transparency for members of congress, for the press or for the american people. i think that we need to move very, very aggressively and do a full-scale investigation as to who knew what and where. you know, this alaki guy in yemen. he's been on our radar screen since 2001, 2002. my sources tell me we had evidence back in 2002 that would have enabled us to prosecute him. why didn't we prosecute him then? the other thing i want to know is people want to know who he's been talking to in the middle east. i want to know what alaki is talking to in the united s
that mistake. we think we need to be ready for additional waves here in the united states. >> so the plan is because of the unpredictability, and though somewhat informed by experience that the manufacturing facilities are going to continued to turn out the vaccine, and the country is going to continue to urge people particularly in that 160 million at-risk population to get the vaccine. am i right? >> yes, that is right. we would imagine for the following year that if this strain is persisting, it might be rolled into the vaccine, be new the winter and spring, we feel like ongoing efforts of prevention are important. >> okay. well, i appreciate the testimony. i had a question for you, but since senator collins put you in the limelight, and i have to go vote, dr. garza, but obviously, secretary of homeland security is the incident manager here and i know you staff her and support her in that role, but i hope that you and she together will go back to look at this, and try to draw some lessons from it. so that, so that some of the great things that have been done here don't for some reason
of recovery was effectively a recession for working families in the united states. now, they have to recover from two recessions. if you are unfortunate enough to try to decide to send your kid to college this year or last year, on fortunate enough to hold onto a small business, this is a life-changing. in many people's lives across my state and all across the country. finally, to find ourselves in a place where there were institutions that were described as too big to fail and it was the taxpayers that had to bail them out after going through a time when i saw their wages decline and opportunities for their children to manage is an incredible insult. this important legislation will put us a much better position going forward to prevent that kind of thing from happening. it is not impossible -- to is not possible to predict every bit as real market. we want to create a well balanced piece of legislation that does not produce unexpected consequences but will protect our country from ever again going through what we are going through today. i am very pleased to join my colleagues here today. i
. at the conclusion of this soundbite, you will hear for the first time the president of the united states warning of a double-dip recession in the united states. listen. >> there may be some tax provisions that can encourage businesses to hire sooner rather than sitting on the sidelines so we're taking a look at those. i think it is important, though, to recognize that if we keep on adding to the debt even in the midst of this recovery, that at some point people could lose confidence in the u.s. economy in a way that could actually lead to a double-dip recession. brian: i think it also shows his impatience with the fact that the hiring is not coming back as quick. the unemployment number is higher than anyone projected. and on top of that he's saying, look, i see the polls, i see what happened two weeks ago. america is concerned about our national credit card. member deficits don't matter. clearly it does matter. gretchen: in both virginia and new jersey both of those states went to republican governors. the number one concern from voters at the exit polls was the economy by a huge margin so a lo

of the detainees who are drank russ and remain dangerous to the united states but can't be tried, that has slowed down the process, and for the first time, acknowledged that he is going to miss the deadline that, privately, white house aides have been suggesting for about a month or so would be missed but in that respect, the president said he told the country guantanomo will remain open, and by unable to say when it will be closed it could be open for most of 2010, which would be to a certain degree undercut what the president thought he would gain by closing guantanomo, which is a better reputation for the united states dealing with human rights. alyson: major, in a few moments we will go back to eric holder speaking about khalid sheik mohammed. did you have a chance to speak to the president about that trial specifically? alisyn: not directly, but the president said something interesting in the course of explaining what will happen to the detainees still at guantanomo. he said some will come to the united states and some will be convicted, which is something that is a bill odd for someone who
hood is one of the largest posts of the united states. it's combat post. based on afghanistan and iraq and the soldiers and the unit, they use these between 12 to 18 months. the post is, you know, over 50,000 people there. so he walked into apparently the processing center which i'm familiar with. where solerers -- soldiers are doing administrative things as you walked into the ball to start shooting. everybody knows everything there. everybody lives around the area. so now inial texas -- so in central texas, that's the major producer. it's the major center of activity. and though it is very, a significant event to have something like this happen. >> all right general, thank you so much for your time. we'll break away and go to the president now who is talking about the tragedy. >> let me first of all just thank the entire department for organizing just an extraordinary conference. i want to thank my cabinet members and senior administration officials who participated today. i hear that he was around so i want to give it a shoot out to that congressional metal of honor winner. good to

afternoon. it is the worst mass shooting ever at a military base in the united states. military officials believe a major on the base, nidal hasan is the shooter. hasan is not dead as previously reported. >> he is currently in custody. and in stable condition. i say again, the shooter is not dead but in custody and in stable condition. >> there is going to be a lot of focus on maybe people that he spoke to. why some action wasn't taken. i don't don't doubt for a second there will be a lot of red flags floating around about this guy. >> meanwhile we are learning more about the man suspected in the shooting rampage. the mosque his son attended says the army psychiatrist did not seem an an extremist. he knew hasan for more than ten years and he was quiet and ten years and he was act you'vely looking for a wife through a program at the mosque. he says in the program application, there hasan listed himself as palestinian even though he was born right here in the united states. now, hasan does have ties to our area. jody smith is live with more on that and possibly what could have been motive f
national security. the fbi has estimated that up to 10% of the mosques in the united states are supported by people who favor terrorism. people are going to be very, very sensitive about that. they are going to be cautious, but you have to ask the question, as terrible as fort hood was, what if, in fact, we have across this country even more people who are prepared to kill americans on behalf of trying to impose on us and essentially for the structure of belief? i think this is a very important problem -- impose on us an essentially foreign belief. greta: let me move to another fascinating discussion, the new york 23rd congressional district. the winner has not been certified, and yet, the democratic candidate has been sworn in. how did that happen? >> well, apparently, when the conservative candidate doug hoffman came close, but nobody really thought it was going to be in any way contest oh, they conceded and in good sportsmanship, which is appropriate in america, and then they discovered they had been given that information, that they had done far better in his key county than they had

. listen to this. >> it is the job of united states congress to give americans confidence that there is a system in place that works for and protect them. this proposal would create a new architecture to make our financial institutions more transparent, more responsible, and more accountable to the american people. sean: more transparent? now, i know that is what you are all about, senator, and i guess that is why it took you one year to release those documents about that sweetheart deal that you got. one dirty secret has now been exposed that reveals a very different story that exists behind the scenes. it turns out that it was barack obama's staff that leaked the reports of john edwards' $400 haircuts, which went to show just out of touch was with everyday americans. the man behind it was an obama campaign manager. the things we know about it john edwards, having a baby with an elected mr. is, it is not exactly watergate. and forget the democratic health-care bill -- having a baby with an alleged mistress. sean: president obama was quick to brag about the ama endorsing t
